It’s recently been announced that Hollywood’s cream of the crop couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, will be reuniting onscreen for the first time since their wildly successful Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Jolie penned the script which is still untitled and her other half has already agreed to star in the film with her. Further details about the film are still unknown, but with this new revelation, not to mention the recent release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starring real life couple Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, I got to wondering which other real life couples should co-star in films soon.but with this new revelation, not to mention the recent release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starring real life couple Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, I got to wondering which other real life couples I’d love to see play couples in movies
Here are my top five picks:
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis
How have these two — two of the funniest people in Hollywood — not already starred in a dozen movies together? This couple has been in talks to star in a movie called Relanxious for years now, but nothing more has been confirmed just yet and we are itching to see them in action together! The new parents have had wildly successful careers on their own with Sudeikis being a celebrated SNL album and Wilde having established herself as a killer comedic and dramatic actress thanks to hit movies like Rush and The Change-Up, so I cannot wait to see the two of them in action together. Whether a comedy, a drama or even a dramedy anything these two star in together is bound to be full of win!
Emily Blunt and John Krasinksi
This couple is probably the closest to perfection, IMO. Both are incredibly sexy, talented, super cool and modest. Blunt is a Golden Globe-winning actress who has excelled as a dramatic and comedic actress on both sides of the Atlantic and he is a writer, director and downright hilarious actor who also has proven his chops as a serious thespian. With Krasinki’s talents and experience behind the camera and Blunt’s talents in front of the camera, how easy/awesome/cool/fantastic would it be if these two teamed up to make a movie together? I bet it’d have us laughing and crying and loving them even more than we already do, so what’s the hold up?!
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi
Portia De Rossi has appeared on her wife’s talk show a handful of times, but the TV star has never actually starred with the talk-show host in anything on the big or small screen. Outside of lending her voice to awesome animated movies (like the upcoming Finding Dory). Ellen hasn’t been doing much of the acting thing since her beloved talk show takes up most of her time, so this couple starring together in a movie is highly unlikely. But I can dream, can’t I? And dream I do of that perfect rom-com where Portia plays a jaded woman who has given up on love until she meets the beautiful and carefree Ellen who shows her what love really is. Sigh.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
Of course these two have already starred together in the long-running hit show, The ’70s Show, but that was years ago and they weren’t dating then so it doesn’t count. Now that the world can see Kutcher as more than just sex-crazed idiot Kelso and Kunis has established herself as a genuine actress who just happens to be a smokin’ hot sex symbol as well, I think it’s time these two reunite for a feature length film. Hell, we’ll even take a The ’70s Show movie; it can be all about how middle-aged Jackie and Kelso find each other through eHarmony and rekindle their high school romance!
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
For such a hot celebrity couple, Justin and Jessica sure do keep to their work separate a lot. I guess that makes sense since Justin’s currently focusing on his music, but we all know that JT has some serious acting chops and we would totally love to see him hit the big screen with his lady love sooner rather than later. Biel has already admitted that she wants to co-star with Justin, so what exactly is the hold up? Surely there’s a script somewhere waiting for two leads, one of whom also happens to be a killer singer, too.
